"Excuse me, excuse me. No President wants war." -- That's our President speaking, in case you were expecting someone else. Check out his flailings under some direct questioning by Helen Thomas of the White House press corps -- yes, it's gotten to the point where he can't remember which flimsy excuse of a talking point to regurgitate on command. "Well 9/11, uh, I mean the Taliban...er, uh, stay the course, yeah, that's the ticket." I think Rove and Cheney might want to take him in for a tuneup.

As a bracing antidote to such buffoonery, check out this Pew Research Center poll on the Prez's performance rating, bottoming out at 33% last week. Scroll down to the part where they track people's choice of a one-word description of W. Let's tick off the top ten most popular: Incompetent, Good, Idiot, Liar, Christian, Honest, Arrogant, Strong, Integrity, and of course Ass. Even assuming that people are not using "good" or "Christian" ironically, I'd say the guy's in trouble.
